    Fat Donnie stinks with the stench of US soldiers’ corpses killed by Putin’s bounty hunters.

    The Great Fat Fool retweeted a video of some old white dipshit at a retirement community in Florida yelling, "White power!" They aren't even pretending anymore.

    Chief Justice Roberts is attempting to restore what little honor it has remaining due to the lurch to the Radical Right under the GOP Senate.

    The Supreme Court on Monday struck down a restrictive Louisiana law that would have left the state with only one abortion clinic.

    It was the first chance for a court reinforced by President Trump’s two conservative appointees to reconsider its abortion rights jurisprudence. But Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. joined the court’s liberals in striking down the law, saying it was required by the court’s decision overturning a Texas law in 2016.

    “The legal doctrine of stare decisis requires us, absent special circumstances, to treat like cases alike,” Roberts wrote in concurring with the decision. “The Louisiana law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons. Therefore Louisiana’s law cannot stand under our precedents.”

        No offense, but you need some fresh, new insults. 

        Endless supply here:

        While visiting Japan, noted aircraft carrier expert Donald Trump calls for a return to steam catapults on the Navy’s carriers. He also wishes the members of the Japanese military a “happy Memorial Day”.

      Whether the right to choose recognized in Roe/Casey continues to exist and, if so, the scope of that right, will be squarely up to the Chief in future cases. The fact that he followed Whole Women's Health, a case in which he dissented, is encouraging.

      One more element to support the Evangelicals' distrust of the right-wing judges project.  Turnout for Trump continues to be uncertain, to say the least.

    It's like shooting fish in a barrel, to be sure, but Sasha Baron Cohen clowned yet another bunch of racist wingnuts this past weekend.

    "Very fine people on both sides (of the street)"

    "I'm white. Proud. Superior Jeans."

    Any bets on who this very fine person is voting for??

    Colorado Supreme Court rules the 15-round magazine limit is constitutional under our state Constitution!

    In an interesting update, seen earlier today on Yahoo News, Trump University has released its polling showing that Trump is ahead in all 72 states.

    Making influenza great again . . . 

    U.S. withdrawal from WHO threatens to leave it 'flying blind' on flu vaccines

    Twice a year, influenza experts from 10 institutions around the world meet at the World Health Organization’s Geneva headquarters to pore over mounds of data. At the end of the weeklong meetings, they make decisions that affect people around the world: namely, which variants of the flu virus should be used for vaccinations the following season.

    While the selections don’t always hit the mark — influenza is notoriously hard to predict — it’s the best process health officials have to keep flu vaccines up to date and try to protect people from the annual scourge.

    Now, with the pending withdrawal of the United States from the WHO, the future of the process — or at least America’s involvement in it — is in question. President Trump has criticized the global health agency’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, and other earlier health crises; he has cited that as his rationale for withdrawing from the WHO, which was established more than 60 years ago.

    . . . sounds about right.

    Everything Ttump ttumps dies . . .
